A Glimmer Through the Doom

with one comment

Perhaps the doom may be averted yet. Though Mitch McConnell appears to have a tin ear on earmarks, he seems to otherwise get it. John Boehner is clearly on board with the starve the beast agenda. The democrats have their eyes firmly shut, fingers stuck firmly in the ears, and are going ya ya ya ya ya ya all the way home. Pelosi remains unchided. Perhaps she is unchidable. Those are better signs than were present on election night.

Also, the news that the republicans did fifty percent better in state houses than in 1994 suggests a bubbling up effect which can be cemented in 2012.

Now the House has to get on with the job of defunding the Obama monstrosity, and pushing lower taxes, lower regulation, and smaller government. They won’t be able to get through the democrats in the Senate (probably) and definitely not past the president, staking out the field of battle for 2012. The democrats are always talking about ‘fighting’ for this or that (except actual military fighting). If the republicans do this right, the democrats will be fighting on losing ground for the next two years.

  1. Someone must have used a clue bat on the Senator, he has changed his position. Glad to hear you are perking up a little. Now we get to see what the ethics committee will do to the Member from Harlem…
